Calypsonians pull out all stops for finals
Calypsonians pulled out all the stops in the first half of the Pic-O-De-Crop finals tonight, with the nine finalists seeking to dethrone reigning monarch Ian Webster.
Webster’s delivery of ‘What is Calypso’ was an apparent response to his critics who continue to question his 2014 piece, ‘Karaoke”.
First-time finalist Donella admitted to being a bit nervous before going on stage, but she told Barbados TODAY she delivered what she thought was a good performance.
“For my second song I think I’ll enjoy myself a little more because it deals with what goes on in society and it’s something you want people to recognize. I tend to enjoy myself in that song,” she said, adding she was looking forward to the performance.
Classic is also looking forward to the second round, after his rendition of the witty ‘In Bed Together’.
In addition to the competitors, spectators were also treated to a performance from this year’s Sweet Soca Monarch, Edwin Yearwood.
